I enjoyed building the Galaxy Explorer. If anyone is thinking of getting it I would highly recommend it.

For a time, the Galaxy Explorer was around $75, and it's worth pointing out that it's a 3-in-1 set. I managed to buy 2 at the reduced price.

I just finished building the 3in1 viking ship I got for 80€. It was a great deal, and nice build and display piece :D

Hmm, there's been a lot of good sets within this price range, high and low; normally I buy my sets at a hefty discount but in the interest of fairness, I'll go by full retail prices.

My favourite on the high end is obviously the Galaxy Explorer as it's by far the best value of all the sets that retail at $100. But the other that comes really close is the soon to retire Inquisitor Transport Scythe which I paid £56 for, about 38% less than normal. Both are great looking crafts with lots of interior space, one has a lot of play functions, the other has what's said to be one of the most comprehensive minifig selection in a Star Wars set.

The low end favourite is Jay's Lightning Jet Evo from Ninjago; it's shocking how that is a low end $10 set for how big it is! It could've been a $15 set because it dwarfs all the Star Wars Microfighter sets that retail for the same price, and is vastly cheaper than the really overpriced and much smaller N-1 Starfighter Microfighter which costs $16!

The mid-ish range favourites is the two smaller Indinana Jones sets; the Fighter Plane Chase really has a lot of good stuff and puts much smaller sets that are priced the same, like Yoda's Starfighter to shame. Escape from the Lost Tomb is another great one, loosely like a diorama and yet has some good figures, play features and reasonable displayability to it. It really shows how much less costly Star Wars diorama sets could and should be without the 18+ labelling that's blatantly a marketing excuse gimmick for Lego to charge more.

Honourable mention for Speed Champions, they're always next level build experiences and good cut-price alternatives to the now overpriced larger Creator Expert/Icons Cars sets. But the price hikes that have occured, which is supposedly happening again next year have hurt its value side of things.

I think my new strategy for purchasing sets is going to be
“Can you easily pick it up with one hand”
Or
“Did Mike Psiaki design it”
(Galaxy Explorer was my favorite from the previous years - and my toddler agrees)

This video is exactly what I needed. I’m planning to buy the orchid and an other high quality Lego build with a total budget of around 100$. What do you recommend me getting?

The real winner for best set under £100 is obviously the tiny Land Rover, it's even in the thumbnail!

The orchids are among the best. Often marked down to a little over €30. Including unique parts and overall one of the best display sets

Definitely have to agree on the Vespa. I’m building it at the moment and every section is a master class of clever building techniques as you don’t really know what part you’re building until you go to attach it and it blows your mind as to how the designer thought of doing it that way!

I absolutely adore the Botanical sets. I put the Dried Flower Centerpiece together a few weeks ago and have it in my living room as a seasonal decoration. The space-themed postcards were a good time as well. They're hanging on a wall. And I knew I had to have the Piranha Plant when I saw your Community Post about it. When I saw some displayed on an end cap at my Target a few days ago, I snapped one up. I have a plushie (always one of my fav Mario enemies) and am thinking of displaying them together. 😆

I recommend anyone who gets the Darth Vader Helmet leave out the grill sticker. I have it, looks so much better w/o stickers.
No big deal too leaving it all black. It works. Eliminates that goofy buck tooth look.

i have the orchid and the horizon sets. the orchid i gave my wife as a present and she loves it :) we put it inside our house as a display piece and from afar looks exactly like the real orchid (without the need to water it or sooner become wilted).

the horizon set still in my shelf, waiting for me to have free time to build it :)

Is it weird that I respect reviewers more if they pay their own money to the products they review? Not given to them by the company

I scooped up the Galaxy Explorer for my 6 year old son for Christmas just yesterday. I can't wait to see his face when he opens it!
